One room (among many) that stood out to me in the new Trad Home was this one:
It appears that the moulding on the walls were painted with a teal middle. I love this! It really finished this room.
This concept is nothing new. I'm sure you've seen it done a lot on HGTV and on blogs, but I really like it. Here is another example from Lonny:
If you watched Design Star, you'll remember they did it in this room:
There is one thing I really like about this - artwork/mirrors can overlapp the "moulding" (as seen in the Lonny picture with the couch). You can't really do that with the depth of traditional moulding.
This is on my design bucket list - I hope to do it someday!
